Ash Wednesday

Today is Ash Wednesday, the first day of lent, the day after Mardi Gras. I wanted to wear my beads and bring a king cake to work, but lo and behold I got a migraine--a migraine so bad it made me sick. So, I called my boss and I didn't go into work. I ended up bring the king cake in last night.

I got back in touch with an old elementary school friend this week. She and I were inseparable back then. She moved away in 6th grade, and we lost touch. Hopefully now, we can rekindle that friendship.

I went to Winter Jam last Friday night. I was supposed to meet Steven Curtis Chapman--I was so excited. But you'd know it--a bunch of folks got stuck in an elevator--including the guy that was going to introduce me--and I heard Steven was in that elevator, too, so it didn't work out. Oh well, maybe one day. I love Steven Curtis Chapman! I did get to meet Britt Nicole, a newcomer to Christian music, and said hello to one of the guys from Newsong (I was backstage).

Have a good week!

Snow in the Upstate!

Guess what! The unthinkable happened! We got snow! We got about an inch to an inch and a half, but it was enough to look pretty and play in a bit. Of course, I was working most of the day trying to keep people informed as to what was going on. You know how southerners panic when it snows. But I was so happy to see it. But it was short-lived. It is already melting. It's supposed to be in the 40s today.
